This is the third programme in the 'Bedside Radio' series produced for the launch of Channel 604 (Radio Royals new arts channel). This composed soundscape was created from recordings made in various hospital departments between 2011 and 2013. It also includes conversations with staff about their own perception of the sound environment they work in. In addition to Forth Valley Royal, recordings were also made in Stirling and Falkirk Community Hospitals. Special thanks to all staff and patients in NHS Forth Valley Hospitals for their help and cooperation.
The sounds that make up this piece were recorded in the following departments:
Anaesthesiology, Clinical Simulation Centre, Health Records, Reception, Laboratories, Ophthalmology, Physiotherapy, Oral and Maxillofacial, Radiology, Nuclear Medicine, Mail Room, Neonatal Unit, Pharmacy, Renal Unit and Speech and Language Therapy Services.
